National minimum skills framework for commissioning of foot care services for people with diabetes
This skills framework aims to help local service providers to deliver high quality foot care services for people with diabetes.
The framework aims to respond to the need for nationally recognised minimum skills for the commissioning of diabetes foot care services. It provides a supportive and robust quality assurance mechanism to enable those involved in service delivery to ensure that appropriately skilled health care professionals give care.
It was developed by Foot in Diabetes UK, Diabetes UK, The Association of Clinical Diabetologists, The Primary Care Diabetes and Society and The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
